It is rare for me to be up before 7:00 on a Saturday (especially when I stayed up till midnight watching basketball) – however today is for a good cause – Hunter has a Cello Competition in Manhattan this morning so off we go!!!  I wanted to get my workout done before we left because the rest of the day is going to be full!

For the 43 today I did a Plie Squat and lunge combo.  Start with a plie squat:

plie squat
plie squat

Turn to right lunge:

Lunge right (closing your eyes takes away the pain!)

Back to plie:

Left lunge:

Lunge left

Those 4 moves = 1 rep x 43.  I stayed in a low squat/lunge the entire time so my quads were on fire by the time I finished all 43!!   Thanks to Chris for posing for the pictures last night!!

I wanted to do a pretty quick workout so I did Les Mills Combat – Combat 45.  It’s been a couple of weeks since I did some Combat and I always love it (even if it is at the butt crack of dawn!!).

Yesterday afternoon was beautiful!!!  I went on a 2 mile walk with a neighbor and one of her dogs (a cute little Papillon who wasn’t really into walking and ended up being carried over half the way – silly girl!).Screen shot 2013-03-29 at 8.01.13 PM

Then Chris and the boys and I played tennis for about an hour – always fun because Chris is the only true tennis player in the group the rest of us just run around a lot!!

Jordan - always has something crazy going on!

Fun times for sure!!  Hunter wore his new basketball shoes because he wants to break them in a little before he starts basketball camp on Monday night.  Tennis – basketball  – both involve a ball –  who needs  special shoes??

Since I was the one who stopped and took a few pictures, there are none of me (funny that happens on vacation a lot, too)  – maybe we should work on that!!  Nah!

Jordan and I decided to enjoy the weather and just walk home from the courts – another 2.5 mile walk around the lake!!!

after an afternoon outside!

I think my post title yesterday was pretty accurate – it was definitely a Fun Friday!  We finished off  the night with some Chinese food, rum drinks and the NCAA basketball tournament!  Bummer that Kansas lost but I still have Duke winning the whole thing so I have a chance to win!!

Now – I’m off to listen to some awesome cello music!!

Happy Saturday!
